Unable to Delete Chat Contacts

Hello. I have contacts in the chat sidebar that I want to delete. Those contacts are not shown in Gmail. I have tried deleting them via Em Client. In a few cases, the delete worked. But in many cases, either (a) the contacts appeared to be deleted but returned when I restarted Em Client or (b) the delete function had no impact on the contacts.

From an earlier response to a similar issue, I turned on the logging for XMPP and restarted. I can send the log files if I can figure out how to attach them…

Any other suggestions? Thanks.

I have the same problem.  After 1 year - it still exists?
I have found it as “confirmed” - well ain’t that special?

My evaluation of this app for my team is taking a turn for the worse.  Sad too, this app had promise.
